Glass quits as Eagles list manager



Former West Coast Eagles captain and premiership player Darren Glass has quit his position as club list manager, having only been in the position for just over a year.


Glass resigned on Thursday to pursue a career in the private sector, having been the Eagles list manager since November 2019 after a previous assistant coaching role with Hawthorn.


West Coast General Manager of Football Craig Vozzo praised Glass for his efforts in a statement released by the club on Thursday.


“Whilst only with us as List Manager for just over a year, Darren has done a great job in what was a very difficult year in the AFL,” Vozzo said.


“His sharp wit and unique humour will be missed around the Football Department, but will serve him well in his future pursuits.


“On behalf of the club, I take this opportunity to thank Darren for his efforts and to wish him, Alicia and the children all the very best of health and prosperity for the future.”


Glass won four club best and fairests in a 270 game career in blue and gold, the dour full back captaining the side from 2008 to his retirement in 2014 as well as playing in the club's 2006 premiership.


“I want to thank CEO Trevor Nisbett and General Manager of Football Craig Vozzo for the opportunity to return to the club I love as List Manager,” Glass said.


“It has been a fantastic learning curve over the past 14 months which has allowed me to grow and develop my skillset.


“While it is with some sadness that I leave the club where I spent my entire playing career, I am confident West Coast is strongly positioned for now and into the future.


“I’m looking forward to supporting Adam Simpson and the players from afar while I start a fresh chapter in my professional life.”


West Coast has begun the search for a new list manager, with an appointment likely before the start of the season in March.
